It’s Fine to Fail

From the day we are born, dreams for the future are formed for us. We go to school bearing the dreams of the world. We are told to fight off failure. Punishment is reserved for failure; reward for success. 

The truth is, failure is fine. 

Failure does not mean no successes happened along the way. When you fail, the universe tells you to look back on your journey with fresh eyes. You’ll be surprised to know how much you’ve succeeded.

The Kiss of Success

Success is a sweet experience. Few things delight us more than the feeling of getting what we want. Imagine the joy of a mountain climber screaming from the summit of Mount Everest.

Success comes with an outpouring of euphoria.

Unsurprisingly, society is obsessed with success. Yet, success is not everything there is to life. When your mind is fixated on a goal that lies in the future, you might miss out on the ecstasy of the present moment.

It’s not bad to covet the kiss of success. But don’t let it stop you from indulging in the gentle smooch of everything you already have.

A Successful Failure

Failure can lead you to a different path, reset your life’s trajectory. It brings forth a new journey, with fresh opportunities for self-growth. Success may take several journeys along a long, winding road. 

Failure helps straighten out the path for you.
